Turkish Cypriot election

There are only four days left until the crucial parliamentary elections in North Cyprus that could make or break any effort to reunify the island ahead of its entry into the EU next May. If Turkish Cypriot opposition parties succeed in unseating longtime leader Rauf Denktash, it could also create a window of opportunity for Turkey, which has sought entry into the EU for years. See James Morrison's "Embassy Row" column in The Washington Times.
